Jay Petrequin, Adam Foster and Mike Vito gather to discuss the recent faked Nintendo NX controller, and talk about what the system itself would need to do in order to set things right following the rocky life of the Wii U. Playstation VR has a price and some specs, but doth SONY ask too much of us? We answer questions about our thoughts on DLC, episodic games, and our favorite games of all time. Jay flies off the handle about Zack Snyder’s latest Snyderism. Adam launches an ASMR empire. Mike tells a PornHub story.
